I had my flight with Aeromexico from Mexico City to Los Angeles going at 2:30 p.m. so I arrived at the airport at 12:50 p.m. (a bit late) but I manage to get to the gate. It's incredible how mexican taxes are spend. After all the security points before going to the gate you need to have kind of like a pat down, this includes children!.
The flight was smooth with a mediocre sandwich, of course in Economy, and we managed to get to LAX at time. And for our surprise we saw a 747 next to a A380, both of Qantas, pretty impressive. The immigration line was just 20 minutes, my last time at LAX was only 10 minutes, much better than MIA. After picking up our bags we took a cab to the SLS, which was 42 USD.
We arrived at the hotel at about 5:30 p.m. so after a rude check-in they gave us a "premier room" which cost me 6 USD plus per night and the only difference was at the last floor and two bottles of Evian, btw terrible view but what an awesome hotel and room.
The decoration of the room is bizarre but really nice, my review at TA: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g32655-d84463-r89214224-SLS_Hotel_at_Beverly_Hills-Los_Angeles_California.html
After unpacking and relaxing we asked the concierge any place to eat and he told us many expensive restaurants but we chose the Little Next Door, a very good restaurant.
Because in Mexico it was 2 hours ahead we slept a bit too early to prepare us for a day of adventure!!
